Oberon Design Cell Phone Sleeve Review

Oberon Design makes handmade leather cases for various products. The quality of the Oberon Design is second to none. The artwork they put on their cases add a texture to it. They recently have been showing off a cell phone sleeve that will fit various touch screen phones like the iPhone and Android Phones.


When you order from Oberon Design all products are made to order. They don’t have a factory of massed produced cases. They rather take the time and make fine crafted cases made here in the U.S. In addition the prices are pretty fair compared to China made cases that are of lesser quality and sometime priced for even more do to a certain name on the case.


The design I chose was the Tree of Life which is one of their more popular designs of the 12 you can choose. The case comes in 3 colors that are saddle (I chose this color), Green, and Chocolate. The cell phone sleeve can fit your iPhone, Android Phone, Smart Phones, and many other cell phones this size.


This cell phone sleeve is the best case I have found for my phone. They look incredible in person and make a fashion statement. I would say if you want a case that looks good and protects your phone then look no further than the Oberon Cell Phone Sleeve.

Oberon Design Dragonfly Pond Amazon Kindle 3 Cover Case Review

When I buy a new gadget I definitely want the best case to protect it. And Oberon Design is one company who creates amazing custom cases. Unlike other companies that have warehouse full of machine made leather cases, Oberon Design makes their covers when you order. The handmade covers are made here in the U.S. by skilled craftspeople.


Oberon Design website allows you to pick and choose what design you want. I chose the blue Dragonfly Pond cover which looks amazing in person. The cover is made of leather which is thicker than your average case for better protection for your Kindle 3. The front of the cover closes secure with a band over a square pewter button with a Dragonfly design.




The interior has soft material so the case does not damage the Kindle 3. This is very important as in the past I bought an expensive case from a different manufacturer and the case ended up scratching the gadget. The Amazon Kindle is secured using leather and elastic loops that cover over the corners of the Kindle 3. Once secured the Kindle 3 stayed put no matter how much I shook it.


Oberon Design makes the best custom cases that are a bit expensive but worth every penny for the amount of detail, craftsmanship, and quality materials they used. Once you own an Oberon Design you get pretty addicted to buying only Oberon Design cases. I’m 100% positive you will love this case.

Noreve Amazon Kindle 3 Tradition leather case Review


I just bought the latest generation of Amazon Kindle 3 and was looking for a case for it. The Kindle 3 is the best eBook Reader hands down. The selection of Kindle 3 cases is rather limited since it just released. Noreve is one the companies that stands out when it comes to cases for high tech gadgets.





When I received the Noreve case I was instantly impressed by the case. It felt of high quality and built to last. You can choose from a number of colors and textures for case at Noreve.com. I chose the standard black leather case. The case starting price is $77.16 and goes up when you customize it.






The Noreve case was built for the Amazon Kindle 3 and fits it like a glove. Instead of rubber bands that go over the edges of the Kindle, Noreve uses a rail system that makes sure the Kindle fits the case secure. The case is made of handcrafted leather and top notch in feel and looks. The case also has a built in section for all your credit cards, cash, business cards, passport, and tickets. The case has a built in stand so you can read while setting the Kindle on a Desk.


The Noreve Amazon Kindle 3 Tradition leather case is the best available case for the Kindle 3. The case is stylish, slim, and durable and will keep your new Kindle protected. I would recommend anyone who wants an amazing case to check out Noreve Amazon Kindle 3 Tradition leather case.

iMainGo 2 Handheld Speaker Case for iPod and iPhone (Black) Review

iMainGo has been getting a lot of buzz recently and I wanted to try out the iPod case/speaker for myself. This case with built in speaker pumps out big sound out of case that can be held in your hand. In all my time reviewing iPod speakers I have never came upon a speaker that sounds this good.






The iMainGo works great with the iPod Touch, iPhone, Zune HD, or any other small MP3 player. The iMainGo speaker is powered by 4 AAA batteries which are included. The player goes inside the case and a strap is used to secure it into place. There is a foam insert included for smaller players like the Zune HD to fit. On the outer side you will find a clear plastic window which you can touch the touchscreen of the iPod Touch and navigate the music interface. The iMainGo also features an alarm so you can wake up to your favorite tunes. The iMainGo has an amazing battery life of 30 hrs and uses replaceable AAA batteries that you can find at any store.


When I think of the iMainGo I think of the perfect case/speaker combo available in the market. The iMainGo is big on sound while protecting your iPod or iPhone. I have gone through my share of cases but this one is unique and real fun to show off. I mean when you turn on the speaker you will blow away the crowd around you with crystal clear sound from a small compact case. This would also be the perfect gift for your son, daughter of family member going off to college.

Noreve Apple iPad Tradition leather case Review


I have had my iPad since launch and have gone through an assortment of iPad cases. I have had some that were decent and others that were plain bad but finally I get to try one of the most anticipated cases for the iPad. Noreve is one of the companies I trust to protect my gadgets form wear and tear. I have own several models and have been pleased each time.




Noreve builds their cases to order so you can pick out color and trim of the case. I chose the all black version which is made of premium handcrafted leather. The case is overall slim and adds little bulk to iPad. All the ports are open to use inside the case. The case closes with a magnetic closure. The build quality of the cases is truly the best I have found.




The Noreve case has built in stand for easy viewing of videos. You can flip the case over to tilt it so it is easy to type on in keyboard mode. The case uses a rail system with leather covered metal sliders on each side. You simply slide the iPad into the case with no effort. Across from the iPad you will be able to add business or credit cards in the slots. There is also a larger spot for a passport or cash.


The Noreve Apple iPad Tradition leather case is the perfect case for those who want an upscale looking leather case with a minimalist design. The built in kickstand and the keyboard tilt mode makes the iPad easier to use inside the case. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who wants the very best case for the iPad.

STRUTZ™ Sole Angel® Review


Reviewed by K.C. Kim


I went shopping to an Outlet mall during the Memorial Day holiday. It was great finding a bunch of deals on name brand clothing. The problem that I was having was with my feet. I wore running shoes but the arch of my feet was feeling great tension. The shoe that I wore did not provide much support for the arch of my foot. That’s when I came upon the Strutz Sole Angel and thought I would give them a try.


The Strutz Sole Angel provide additional cushion for your feet similar to an insole. The Sole Angel wraps around your feet with a stretchable band that you can wear on your bare feet or over your socks. The Sole Angels are tight so if you have diabetes or circulation problem it is not recommended to wear them. The fit is a little tight but once you break them in for a while they become increasingly comfortable. I wear socks over the Sole Angels and then wear my shoes and found the extra support to be great.


I really like the Strutz Sole Angel as they provide an extra support for my feet. I no more have to deal with pain every step I take. The Sole Angel work great with most type of running, walking, and basketball shoes. The Strutz Sole Angel is beneficial as it provides extra cushioning, stabilization, and comfort.

XO Skins Apple iPad Skin Protector Full Body Review


Reviewed by K.C. Kim

http://xoskins.com/apple-ipad-skin-protector-screen-scratch-cases-shields-armor-guards


Now that you bought the Apple iPad then you will want to protect it. XO Skins provides a skin protector for maximum protection. The XO Skins full body version includes front and back along with side protection.





The XO Skin comes with the front/back and side protectors, along with solution, applicator and instructions. I have found that if you take your time that applying the protector is very simple. I normally find a dust free environment like a bathroom. Then I would carefully peel the protector off and spray the solution. I would then align the protector on the iPad. Finally use the applicator to remove the water bubbles. I suggest you wait a 24hr period so all the bubbles disappear and the iPad is moisture free.


You will not be disappointed by the XO Skins full body iPad Skin Protector. It is a great solution to protect your iPad from dust, scratches, and more. And plus this comes with a lifetime warranty so this is the last protector you will need.

Some of the biggest brands such as Fossil and Louis Vuitton are coming out with iPad cases. This is due to the success of Apple created gadgets people want to buy. And when they buy that $500 and up Tablet they want to protect it as well. The iPad case market is booming right now and we will see more and more of these cases to come out.


Fossil is already shipping their offering to the public. The Fossil Tablet Cover is a leather case that has loads of style and great value. The iPad case features genuine full grain leather, button tie, white stitching, and an elegant design.


The Fossil Tablet Cover is a leather sleeve case with a unique button tie that closes the enclosure. The colors it comes with are Navy, Cognac and Dark Brown. The case is a snug fit but that is better than being loose and falling out.


At only $40 this case feels like it could cost much more. It is an amazing case that looks better than the pictures on the product page. The Fossil Tablet cover is a great simple solution to protect your iPad on the go.

Fossil is getting in on the iPad craze with there own iPad case. When I was browsing MacRumors forum I came upon the case and thought it look different from the limited amount of cases available by third party manufacturers.


The Fossil Tablet Cover comes in 3 colors that are Navy, Cognac, and Dark Brown. I have two of the three colors so I can say that the Navy looks more black and the Dark Brown has a shade of red in it.



The Fossil Tablet Cover does not look like your normal case so it can be confused for say a leather folder. This is a good thing as you don’t want a case that says take me I am an expensive gadget. The case is beautiful with a vintage type of cool style to it. Instead of magnets or Velcro the case uses button tie with the string tying the two parts together. The iPad fits perfectly inside but is slightly snug.


The Fossil Tablet Cover -Decker iPad Case is one of the more attractive cases available for the iPad. I recommend this to anyone who wants a good quality case that looks nice and protects your iPad.

Clarivue Apple iPad Screen Protector Ultra-Clear Review


Reviewed by K.C. Kim

http://www.clarivue.com/apple-ipad-screen-protector.html


Apple has created the iPad with minimalist design so the full front of the device is filled with the 9.7″ screen. The iPad is known to be a dust and smudge magnet. So Clarivue has a great solution with their screen protector.



The screen protector by Clarivue features anti-scratch, ultra-clear finishing, silicon adhesive protective layer, no residual marks, and bubble free application. The screen protector comes with solution to apply the screen protector properly.


Overall the Clarivue lives up to its advertisement. It is a great screen protector for the Apple iPad. It in my opinion should be your first purchase after buying the iPad. This will keep your iPad looking new.
